The exhibition features a new, ambitious site specific installation involving the large-scale projection of miniature scale models.

PR Info _  David McDiarmid’s studio practice seeks to examine the concept of megalomania in architecture; the means by which the built environment is often purposefully designed, constructed and used as a tool for power and propaganda.

For Interview Room 11, the Glasgow-based artist presents a body of work as a culmination of the last three years of research. The exhibition features a new, ambitious site specific installation involving the large-scale projection of miniature scale models.

Many of McDiarmid’s paintings and models play with ideas of scale and form, taking inspiration from historical examples of power architecture in order to depict ambitious plans and proposals for structures which will never exist in reality.

Integral to the development of McDiarmid’s work is the consideration of how the installation and presentation of his paintings and models in an exhibition, can influence the viewer behaviourally or emotionally, like the architecture of power is designed to do.
